Private Property, was aquired in the early days, by the conquering of weaker tribes and grabbing their land Those that profited from owning land profited because of the exploitation of chattel slaves, share croppers and feudal serfs. …
After the industrial revolution owners of factorys, mines and mills, got rich profiting from the exploitation of cheap labor.
People that own for a living, have only land, factories, mines, mills and stores. None of these investments by owners is creating new value, until a decision is made, to create new value. New value is only created by the purchase of people that are willing to work for a wage. The worker creates value, and that value is measured by the amount of necessary time that is spent by that worker in the creation of that thing of value. That value could be exchanged for value that has an equal amount of socially necessary time attached to it.
Because the worker that created a thing of value, receives value in the form of a wage, that is much less than the value that he or she created as a worker.
The amount of value produced by the worker and not received by the worker is the amount that was stolen by the owner from the worker.
The evidence of this grand theft is the fact that due to this exploitation of labor power all over the world, the workers had and have been encouraged to organize as a class, so as to receive more of that pie known as the gross national product.
This thievery by the private sector is a form of stealing that overshadows every other kind of massive stealing!
Taxes is not thievery, as some ignorant individuals would have you believe!
The Government that has the responsability of maintaining social order so that the society can run without disruption, must collect taxes to pay for what is necessary to maintain order and promote the general good!
THOSE THAT EQUATE TAXES WITH STEALING ARE OUT OF THEIR MIND!
